Discover an underwater paradise on this Vieques snorkeling tour. Depart your San Juan hotel for a 7-hour (including driving time), family-friendly excursion to Vieques Island, then delve into pristine Caribbean waters to snorkel and swim among rays, sea turtles, and schools of colorful fish. During this trip we make two stops by the waters of Vieques. Here you will have the opportunity to spend time relaxing on the beach, snorkel, paddle board and learn about the local environment — and how best to keep it healthy for future generations — before heading back to San Juan.
Begin with included pickup from your San Juan hotel and enjoy the drive to Ceiba. We will then depart on boat and travel to Vieques Island, roughly eight miles (13 km) east of mainland Puerto Rico.
On arrival, you’ll receive a swim and snorkel safety briefing and instruction. Then, once you feel comfortable with your gear, your guide will take you to various parts of the underwater reef to explore. Learn to identify different types of coral and marine life with help from your guide as you go.
Bask in the clearness of the local waters, unencumbered by silt. Marvel at the many sea turtles, rays, tropical fish, and even manatees that venture info the reef and up to the beaches of Vieques (this may vary from day to day).
Following your snorkeling session, there will also be time for relaxing on the beach and do some paddle boarding. Depending on the weather, you will visit either Playa La Chiva (Blue Beach), Punta Arenas (Green Beach) or Mosquito Pier. Your captain and crew will serve a variety of local snacks for your enjoyment as you relax on the pristine sands. Take in exquisite views of the mountains raising from the rainforest to your west.
After roughly four waters on the water, enjoy a boat ride back to San Juan and transport to your local lodging.
